Do you realize that this also happens in hospitals when patients are transferred to other units? The following is about my personal experience in the early 2000s. I went in atrial fibrillation and after vomited 1 1/2 liters of systemic blood, I was admitted to the medical unit in our local medical center. During my first week, the CNAs assumed that the abnormally low readings on my blood pressure readings were normal. (This is why it is extremely important and should be a mandatory rule every staff member needs to abide by.)
After my not being able to sit up in bed at all, my Physician called in my Pulmonary specialist, and he said it was Pulmonary Hypertension, and I was moved to the PCU.
The first morning in that unit, a cheerful CNA approached me again assuming I was able to sit up, for my personal hygienic care, but was unable to due to my systemic blood loss in the ER, I told her I would pass out if I sat up. That made her cry, and it made me feel bad. (all due to the lack of communication between units when a patient is transferred to a new one.) and due to her attempt to raise my bed in the High Fowlers position, I went into acute kidney failure. Later that day, an RN gave me a bed bath. When my Foley catheter was emptied into my graduate for fluid output measuring, the urine was completely black. Thankfully, my Physician was able to figure out why that happened to me, and I recovered.
